  1. Hi I recently got your e-mail thank you.
    I am keen to return to coding but are unable to dedicate a particular time to study. Do Codecademy have a online course where I can study at my own pace please. I trying to teach myself Responsive Web design and now see something abut bootstrap. It has been 12months since my last course on web design and realise technology changes quickly.

  2. Great video! I have a JavaScript vs. JQuery question in connection to this tutorial though. With JS tutorials I've seen, to code an action for a form submit button you have to supply an action= argument to the <form> tag (if using PHP, CGI, ASP, etc.) or something like onSubmit="JavaScript:ExampleJS()" for JS, but it looks like JQuery (which is a form of JS) doesn't require that, so I'm guessing the only way the $('form').submit(function(event)) code works is that somehow the entire HTML document is passed to JQuery which then selectively parses the elements (not all that different from how CSS seems to be applied). Is this correct, and if so why can't regular JS do this? Thanks in advance.

    <header class="header">
    <div class="container">
    <div class="row">
    <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-12">

    <div class="main">
    <div class="container">
    <div class="row">
    <form class="form">
    <div class="col-xs-8 col-md-10">
    <input id="comment" type="text" placeholder="share your thoughts">
    <div class="col-xs-4 col-md-2">
    <button type="submit" class="btn">post</button>

  4. Thank you for posting this video! I completely forgot about this until it was over. Please make more video like this, especially helps since I'm a CS student.

  5. Very helpful and informative tutorial. I was able to follow all the code writing. Thanks to CodeAcademy HTML & CSS class! 🙂
    Keep the good work!
    Thanks a lot!

  6. "form input {}" doesn't do anything for me unless I put a period in front of "form". I thought when selecting a class the periods were required. How are you able to see results without using a period in front of a class selector in CSS?

  7. Great video! Just started my path to full-stack front-end, couldn't do it before with books and videos, was getting very bored and disappointed, but with help of codecademy interactive learning everything went smoothly. Even looking for additional information and documentation beside codecademy became much easier. Thank you very much! Waiting for more videos!
